Beach Jammin'

I LOVE the beach. Who doesn't? But there's one thing I never leave behind when I drag my ass to the shoreline: music. I've got plenty of it for you all today, from songs that'll root you to your chairs as the tide ebbs and flows, to songs that will simply make you wanna throw down. So, here you go.

Goin with the beach theme here, "Stylo" comes off of the relatively new Gorillaz album Plastic Beach. Alex Metric turns the whole song upside down, transforming it into 6 minute long disco romp.

Hailing from Long Beach, CA, LBCK bring the funk with some disco inspired chops and cuts.

Jam on your towels to this remix from UNC student Hidden Cat.
Housse de Racket - Oh Yeah! (Hidden Cat Remix)

I remember "Pump up the Jam" from a now very old Jock Jams CD. I dug it back then, dig the Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike remix even more. This one'll get things started.
Technotronic - Pump up the Jam (Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike Crowd Is Jumping Mix)

And now, I give you these two hot n' fresh bangers. Steve Angello brings the noise with this original. JSK adds some booty shakin vocals from Lil' Jon. I'll let you decide which one you would like to melt your face.
